Full course description
Help your students communicate with impact
In this course, you will learn to help your students analyze, and create powerful stories, as well as present new information with clarity and ease. When students need to make science fair posters, social studies infographics, journals, language arts essays, lab reports, physics explainers or poetry analysis, Adobe Spark can help. With Adobe Spark, Post and Video, students are able to quickly and easily present information in professional, catchy, and creative ways.
By teaching your students how to tell their own creative visual stories, or to respond to what they learn with images and videos, you’re giving them valuable digital skills and helping them to develop vital communication skills applicable to any industry.
Engage your students with essential creative and digital skills
Teaching students to use digital tools to present information in creative ways - whether in a research presentation or a personal narrative - helps them to engage more deeply in their learning. It’s never been easier to encourage creativity and capture the imagination of your students. Using Spark Post, Page and Video introduces students to a variety of digital skills they may otherwise not learn until much later in their lives. As Spark is so easy to use, it’s a perfect introduction to digital literacy and essential creative thinking skills.
Everything in this course, from video tutorials to lesson plans and resources, is perfect for assigning directly to your students. Or, if you prefer, you could even use our materials as inspiration to create your own lesson plans and projects that speak directly to your students.
